Waiting on Wed

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine in which we have the opportunity to let others know about books that we are eagerly waiting for.


{Waiting on Wednesday} What Light You Left Me

History Is All You Left Me

by Adam Silvera

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, LGBT

OCD-afflicted Griffin has just lost his first love, Theo, in a drowning accident. In an attempt to hold onto every piece of the past, he forges a friendship with Theo's last boyfriend, Jackson. When Jackson begins to exhibit signs of guilt, Griffin suspects he's hiding something, and will stop at nothing to get to the truth about Theo's death. But as the grieving pair grows closer, readers will question Griffin's own version of the truth—both in terms of what he's willing to hide and what true love means.

Why I’m waiting: I’ll admit I haven’t read Adam’s other book (More Happy Than Not) yet for the sole reason that I’m afraid I won’t like it. It’s a much loved book, but it’s also a bit sci-fi and I’m not a big fan of that. I will read it some day. But this book sounds much more up my alley and I really can’t wait to read it. That release date is so far away though. Sigh.


{Waiting on Wednesday} What Light You Left Me

What Light

by Jay Asher
Published on October 11th 2016
by Razorbill
Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Also by this author: Thirteen Reasons Why, What Light

From Jay Asher, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Thirteen Reasons Why, comes a romance that will break your heart, but soon have you believing again. . .

Sierra's family runs a Christmas tree farm in Oregon—it's a bucolic setting for a girl to grow up in, except that every year, they pack up and move to California to set up their Christmas tree lot for the season. So Sierra lives two lives: her life in Oregon and her life at Christmas. And leaving one always means missing the other.

Until this particular Christmas, when Sierra meets Caleb, and one life eclipses the other.

By reputation, Caleb is not your perfect guy: years ago, he made an enormous mistake and has been paying for it ever since. But Sierra sees beyond Caleb's past and becomes determined to help him find forgiveness and, maybe, redemption. As disapproval, misconceptions, and suspicions swirl around them, Caleb and Sierra discover the one thing that transcends all else: true love.

What Light is a love story that's moving and life-affirming and completely unforgettable.

Why I’m waiting: 13 Reasons Why is the only book I’ve read by Asher and it was so powerful. A call to action for suicide prevention and the repercussions for those left behind. I cannot wait to read his new book. Also, that cover is gorgeous 🙂

(Note from Bee: It really is. And I loved 13 Reasons Why!)

What are you waiting for this week?

About Jay Asher

Except for six months in Wyoming, I’ve lived my entire life in California. It was during those six months in Sheridan, Wyoming that I came up with the idea for Thirteen Reasons Why. I’ve worked at an independent bookstore, a chain bookstore, an outlet bookstore, and two public libraries. Before those jobs, I worked at a shoe store, a trophy shop, and an airline. My very first writing award earned me a free fruit smoothie every day for a year. I’ve won a lot of awards since then, but that one tasted the best!

  1. I’m kind of curious about the new Adam Silvera book too! Although, CONFESSION I HAVEN’T READ HIS DEBUT EITHER. I’m iffy about the sci-fi elements too?? I’ve read contemporary/sci-fi cross-overs and MERP. It never does much for me. *shrugs* This one does look good though!
    I’ll be avoiding the Jay Asher one though as I didn’t like 13 Reasons Why ahhaah.🙈🙊

  2. Both seem like great stories. History is All You Need looks like an emotional read and I’m a sucker for those. I haven’t read many LGBT books either, so i’m definitely looking forward to giving this one a shot. As for What Light, seems romantic and interesting. I’m curious about what happened in Caleb’s past that he’s paying for. Thanks for sharing these! Hope we all enjoy them when we get the chance to read them 🙂

    Happy Wednesday!
